Tara's Take: Emmy Fashion

By: Tara Wheeler

My pick for best and worst dressed at this year's Emmy Awards!

Stars have wardrobe stylists, make-up and hair dressers, and an army of other professionals with the mission of making them look their very best when it counts most. With all of that help, coupled with the natural beauty so many A-listers posses, you'd figure that every single star would look flawless...

Nina Dobrev from the Vampire diaries sure looked flawless to me!

My best dressed!

I LOVE this bold, red Donna Karan gown. The color compliments her skin tone and it fits her perfectly. The "V" of the neckline also makes her waist look even smaller than it already is and gives her a beautiful, exaggerated hourglass figure. I love that her hair is simple but still put-together and that the jewelry and clutch add just a little bit of sparkly without too much glitz. 

On the other hand....

Gweneth Paltrow, why????

My Worst Dressed!

While Nina's red gown gave the illusion of an exaggerated hour glass figure, the shape of the design on Gweneth's Pucci gown gives the illusion of a saggy bust. Also, the sheer lace framing her midsection makes it look like the shadow of her belly rolling over, when she's really a tiny girl! Not flattering at all. I think this may have looked better in person, but it sure does not come across well in pictures. Her face is radiant and her make-up looks amazing, but I think her hair looks un-styled. If you are going to try to work such a busy dress, I think it's important to keep the hair pulled back so it doesn't overwhelm the gown.

But that's just my opinion. At the end of the day, if these women looked in the mirror and felt good about themselves, that's all that matters!
